's expected to pass overwhelmingly this afternoon poenl the united states and israel will be voting no. great britain is planning to abstain. nbc's martin fletcher join me, after covering celebrations that began early in ramallah. quite a lot of celebrating among the palestinians. we should stress this is symbolic. martin it will give them access, potentially to the international criminal court of justice, action against israel they've long been wanting to take. doesn't move them toward statehood. the u.s. says this is a step back, not a step forward. from the palestinian perspective, this is long awaited. and achieves a lot of what they've been trying to do on the world stage. >> reporter: what it does, it's a step forward for them, it's a major step forward. but the people i was speaking to in ramallah, palestinians say it's not a big deal. it's not going to change anything on the ground. nevertheless it is a major step forward and something the palestinian leader president has been trying to do for a year he was beaten, if you like, almost into not taking this step last year by the united
economy. you look around the world, australia, canada, england, israel, there are lots of countries that don't have anything close to what we have in terms of preferences in the tax code yet they have the same rates of homeownership. liz: i hear you. i hear you. let me jump in for a minute. dan makes a fantastic point, a couple of them. one of them by virtue putting this deduction out here we're making a value judgement about encouraging it. government says homeownership is great. it hasn't been great for a little while. a lot of people got hurt in the market because the government was telling people to rush in. maybe they create distortions with this type of thing. >> of course the government's best job they create distortions in the marketplace. i agree with you and our other guest we need to reduce those deductions make much simpler, much fairer tax code and completely eliminate those entirely. that would make sense. that would allow everyone to understand what they're paying. would put more cash in the pockets of americans, could ramp up spending an investment and get small busi
president morsi, supporting hamas during this recent dust-up with israel. >> yes. >> sean: it begs the question, are the protesters right? is barack obama backing an egyptian dictator, a radical islamist? >> yes. well, let me borrow a favorite phrase of the liberals. silence is complicity. what's happening here. the silence from this administration about christian persecution, the silence about the sentencing to death of these coptic christians over the stupid video, their silence about the suppression of free speech that continues in egypt, is damning, and it is an indictment of this administration for continuing to back what these democracy movements activists are calling the new pharaoh. >> sean: well, that's interesting, because drudge had an interesting piece up on his site. is morsi about to turn egypt into the new iran? >> well, look, if you want to know what the blueprint for an islamic califate wit look at egt now. this is exactly playing into the hands of the muslim brotherhood. >> sean: why doesn't the administration see the danger? this is a muslim brotherhood guy, we'r
: of course. there is in solution to the palestinian and israel problem but violence. the israelis have cut up the west bank and gaza to the extent where you can't put a nation state together and the leadership of the palestinians is slowly going in the islamist direction. we are supporting a movement that will put islamists in power there that will only make the palestinians more islamic so, we are really in a self defeating situation >>neil: why do we put good money after bad? the people hate us more than they ever have, again and again and again. >>guest: stop it all, sir. we have a political elite in both parties who measure their esteem by what they do overseas. we have a crumbling never structure at home, we have a tragic deficit and yet they take money out of your pocket and my pocket and give it to foreign gangsters. it is something the founders could never have believed could ever happen. >>neil: you have to have a network of close friends and help them and get the word of democracy out and you say that is fine? >>guest: each dollar we spend on democracy or creating overseas creates m
to remember that when you talk about egypt's relationship to israel and the palestinians, egypt is a country of 80 million people. t a lot of them are poor. accepting palestinians working with that region is. >> reporter: fraught. >> gut reaction. at the end of the day, the man, i'm curious what rick came away feeling, one sentence what this man has to say about israel as a friend? >> i think that's still a question mark. looking at facts, he didn't open the borders between egypt and gaza to allow militants out or allow guns back in. i think looking at actions at this point is what we have to go on. >> you touched on the president's desire to turn back power in the next two weeks or two-week time frame. how is that sitting still? you've got the protests in the square. you've got that momentum that seems to be rebuilding, that led to the ouster of mubarak and the toppling of that government. do they have that concern in the back of their mind? are they seriously looking to turn this thing around and giving the power back to the people or is this stage craft? >> it's a great question. it's int
